a host of young British talent and well known faces including Ralf
Little (The Royale Family), Will Mellor (Casualty), Natalie Casey
(Hollyoaks) and Beverly Callard (Coronation Street), Two Pints of
Lager (and a Packet of Crisps) is the booze fuelled hilarious comedy
set in sunny Runcorn, about five friends who work very hard at doing
episodes such as "Fags, Shags & Kebabs", "Ugly
Babies" and "Dirty Girls" the gang attempt to make
sense of love, lager and living on a shoestring.
Donna (Casey), a gobby pint-swilling girl with a dirty mouth and
a mind to match. She's sleeping with Gaz (Mellor) who's passionate
about Man City and big-breasted girls
but Donna will have
to do. Jonny (Little) is the shy and retiring type, a few cans short
of a six-pack but devoted to Janet (Sheridan Smith, Dark Ages),
who is content picking her toes on the sofa, or talking rubbish
with Donna down the girl's pub. Louise (Kathryn Drysdale) is without
a special someone, but puts all her energies into finding one
provided their star signs are compatible! Finally there's Flo (Callard),
Donna's acid tongued mother, who drinks for England and dishes out
inappropriate advice whenever she can!
by 23 year old Runcorn born Susan Nickson, Two Pints of Lager (and
a Packet of Crisps) is produced by Stephen McCrum and directed by
Gareth Carrivick (The Vicar of Dibley, Goodness Gracious Me).
